UNM women’s golf tops the nation in team GPA again

For the second straight year, the University of New Mexico women’s golf team has been named the recipient of the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-Scholar Team Grade Point Average Award, the organization announced Monday.

The award recognizes the women’s collegiate golf program with the highest collective team GPA in the nation, which includes all of the team’s student-athletes for the 2019-20 season.

The Lobos earned the highest GPA of all divisions. UNM recorded a 3.965 GPA to top the NCAA Division I list, edging Wisconsin-Green Bay (3.958) and California Baptist (3.950).

Six Lobos earned WGCA All-American Scholar accolades: juniors Caroline Jansson and Serena Chon, sophomore Kamie Hamada and freshmen Lauren Lehigh, Alice Rindestig and Napat “Jenny” Lertsadwattana.

VOLLEYBALL: UNM and New Mexico State earned United States Marine Corps and American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Awards for the 2019-20 season, the AVCA announced Monday.

UNM and NMSU were among 227 NCAA Division I teams to be selected. UNM was one of 46 teams to earn the additional distinction of AVCA Team Academic Honor Roll, which comes after a year of setting new academic program records. It is the first time that the Lobos have earned Honor Roll distinction.

The award honors collegiate and high school volleyball teams that displayed excellence in the classroom during the school year by maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative team grade-point average on a 4.0 scale or a 4.10 cumulative team GPA on a 5.0 scale.

This is the third consecutive season in which the Aggies have received the award.
